Artist Of The Week (3-1-93)

The Replacements

This was originally posted by Francois Rousseau last week.  Merci.


Tricky fingerpicking:

To get the feeling try playing the D chord and alternate the way you
play the last string between the 2nd fret (as in a D) and the open
string (D9). Do the same with the GM7 chord (alternate on the little
string between the second fret and the open string). I fingerpick the
whole song and it sounds ok.

For the D: easy to play for everybody...

1 E: 2  (alternate with open string (e))
2 B: 3
3 G: 2
4 D: 0
5 A: 0
6 E: X

For the GM7: hard to play for beginners...

1 E: 2  (alternate with open string (e))
2 B: 0
3 G: 0
4 D: 0
5 A: 2
6 E: 3

                   (The Replacements)

Capo 3rd fret
intro: C CM7 C CM7

You take the Skyway
CM7                         C
High above the busy little one way
         CM7                            Am
In my stupid automn gloves at night a lie awake
Wanderin' if I'll sleep
  Am                                D7
Wanderin' if we'll meet out in the street
To take the Skyway

CM7                           C
It don't move at all like a subway
          CM7                          Am
It's got bums when it's cold like any other place
It's warm up inside
  Am                            D7
Sittin' down and waitin' for a ride
Beneath the Skyway

        Am  F  D7  CM7 (or C)  Am  F  D7

Oh then one day
  C                                 C
I saw you walkin' down that little one way
 CM7                                  C
Where the place I catch my ride most everyday
                 Am                      D7
They weren't a dawn thing I could do or say
               CM7      C
Up in the Skyway
 CM7     C     CM7    C
Skyway       Skyway
